And the cops worry about marijuana. Looks like they had a bunch of drunks to deal with. Alcohol abuse has HIGH societal costs.

I would much rather confront a stoner than a drunk person any day!!!

It does not take a lot of effort to stay away from stoners and drunks. Confronting either is probably not a good idea.

With a bar AND NOW a pot shop on every corner; and with the lines backed across the street and around the block, it might be a wee bit harder than you think to "stay away from stoners and drunks".

AS I watched the Denver news showing all the folks lined up for the legal MJ the other day I couldn't help but wonder: How many of the folks standing there waiting to lay down serious $$$ for some pot were delinquint on their child support payments, were collecting some form of government assistance, were behind on their rent or car payments, etc...

Probably about the same as alcoholics, meth, pill and ski addicts and just plain flaky people, Mark. Flaky Parents is a completely different subject. So I'm not sure what your point is.

Mark Probably 90%. Was in line at grocery store a couple days ago. A young couple had about $40 worth of groceries and $30 worth of beer. They paid for the groceries with food stamps and the beer with cash. We taxpayers bought their groceries so they would have plenty of money to spend almost as much on beer. No one should starve but there is something serioulsy wrong with the current system.
